"Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier"
Basil attracts butterflies and repels other pests. Oregano repels aphids. Carrots attract insects beneficial to the garden particularly the tomato. (See more Carrot Companions) Onions/Chives repel pests.
